    I suppose the old fart in charge of the disaster that is PDVSA is a former mate of Dead Man Now Really Dead Chavez himself.

    This company is really fcuked on so many fronts and at all levels it is no surprise they cannot even pump the stuff.

    Shades of YPF but on a grander scale.

    Chubby would be so proud.

    How does a business, an oil business no less with crude selling 90 to 110 a barrel, a country with some of the largest reserves in the world, get itself in a position of needing money and taking on debt?

    “Maybe they plan to import toilet paper?”

    I guess that's a resource too complicated to produce in Venezuela. 50 million/ 52 weeks=961,538 rolls a week for a population of 28.5 million. Even if you consider 5 to a household per roll per week still comes to 5.7 million households with only 961,538 rolls. .....seems 1 in 6 households can wipe and the other 5 are shit out of luck.

    I guess that saves on the CIA expenditures by organizing a toilet paper shortage rather than organizing a coupe'. Seems the CIA really changed their ways under Obama.
